BRACES & COMPRESSION FOR GOLF

BEST BRACES & COMPRESSION FOR GOLF

Golf requires lots of calculated, repetitive movement, leaving the joints susceptible to strain and injury. Athletes can quickly develop “Golfer’s Elbow” due to poor mechanics, overuse, or a combination of both. Bauerfeind’s graduated compression promotes healing blood flow and proprioception to reduce pain, swelling and re-injury. Whether you are recovering from injury or trying to ensure your best performance, Bauerfeind braces and supports stabilize the joints without limiting mobility, so you can rely on your body to get you through a full 18-holes.

 

Prevention and Treatment of Golfer’s Elbow

Medial epicondylitis, commonly known as “Golfer’s Elbow”, refers to inflammation of the tendons joining the forearm muscles to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, weakness or in more severe cases numbness and tingling originating at the inner part of the elbow and radiating through the wrist and hand. As the name suggests, Golfer’s Elbow is common among athletes who play golf, but it can affect tennis players and others who repeatedly clench their wrists and hands. Wearing an elbow strap, brace or support can help to reduce pain and inflammation associated with golfer’s elbow. Bauerfeind offers 4 products to help prevent or treat this injury: Sports Elbow Support and Sports Elbow Strap.

FAQ’s:

What are the most common injuries for golfers?

Do I need to wear a brace while playing golf?
If you’ve ever suffered a back, knee, wrist or elbow injury, our medical specialist recommends wearing an appropriate brace or support while golfing. If you’ve never had an injury, you may still want to consider an athletic brace like the Bauerfeind Sports Elbow Support, Sports Knee Support or Sports Wrist Strap to help protect yourself against excessive strain while playing tennis.

How do you prevent golfer’s elbow?
“Golfer’s Elbow” is the common name for medial epicondylitis, inflammation of the tendons joining the forearm muscles to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow caused by overuse. While there is no silver-bullet to preventing golfer’s elbow, a good warm-up regimen, limiting your strain and wearing a graduated compression support can help reduce your risk. At the first sign of pain, you should limit overuse and increase your rest to give your body time to heal.
